nice base!
And nice clour scheme too.
I was going to put some crystals on the base of my Etheral, I have the crystals set aside already ;D

Nice job so far Faol, very smooth colour.
Some areas, like the legs & light blue bits, still need highlights but, I guess that's a bit further on the list.

Gah, why didn't I think of crystals for my base?
(Then again, in an urban cadre...)

Faol,

This is a fantastic start!

I was wondering why you don't complement the chaos black with a highlight color as you do with the Dark Angels and snot green effects?

Or is this still on the to do list?

I've been thinking about that in my head the only parts that are chaos black are the business ends of the fusion blasters the Tau symbol on the knee pads and the backs of the legs

The bulk of the main body is a mix of Chaos Black and Dark Angels Green with a highlight of straight Dark Angels Green. The DAG parts are highlighed with a mix of DAG and Fortress gray.

wicked pose. Looks much like in the codex, which I assume you modeled it after.

However...I can't help but think of online Halo looking at it. not the painting, which is excellent, but the jumping. I play a lot of online Halo and watch people jumping around constantly.

I take it this lucky fellow will DS behind enemy armor?

Very skilled work.

Thank you and yes I modeled the pose after the art in the codex also a member here had done one of his suits in the same pose (before me) those were my 2 sources of inspiration.

Believe it or now when I was studying his pose and all painted up I could picture him being the kind of pilot that would be bounding around the battle field. I've been mentally taking notes so I cold wirte some kind of story on my cadre and some of the characters and Re Kayon Da Sha Kais (pilot of the above suit) is more of a let do it kind of warrior

Hmmm I like what I see hear mate
Great start-> base need some work and may be some damage, but generally, a REALLY good job. About the modeling, well I do like it, in fact I am working on a project of "Shas'El scratch build" myself

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!
